NCIS (Tim/Tony 1)
NCIS 7.19

YAY FOR MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF TIM/TONY. I have been waiting patiently and now it is mine.

Oh, show, you are SO BLATANT.

TONY. THAT IS NOT ON. YOU FUCKING JERK. Ugh. (He's really, really upset, isn't he? He's like, in emotional turmoil right now.)

And now he's flirting with McFake? BAH. And Tim isn't happy. So yes, this episode is basically a slashfic. I have high hopes that it ends in Tim/Tony kissing. Or the network tv equivalent.

... no, honestly. I'm kind of surprised by how very "this is all about their relationship" this episode is. It feels like a dream put on screen.

These two are not a good match because they look like brothers. And okay, some people are into that. But not me.

Tim is a total voyeur (and you just know part of him is going "I need to tell Tony this.")

That look was, er, there are no words for what that look was. There was much checking out of Tony's ass. Who plays that look except as anything other than 'Tim clearly is incredibly gay for Tony'?

WTH, Tony? "Daddy's gonna make wee wee"?! Tim's fond little smile. "That's him improvising."

London brother! Looking fine. I always felt those two were good actors and it was sad they never got much work. Shame he's a killer.

What happened to Mallison and why does this show persist in hooking Gibbs up with morally questionable women? (Which is not to say he isn't morally questionable himself, because he totally is.)

TCad. I... what. the. fuck. Tim is SO JEALOUS. And Tony knows it. McBitter? And this is all one long weird little fucked up game they're playing.


:( :( :( As much as I do not doubt this is going to end well, I am feeling very upset for the Tim/Tony break up right now. Tony, don't punish Tim by witholding his nutter butters. That's just cruel.

I KNEW IT. Abby was always going to understand. She would so bring out the pom poms. Black, of course. With maybe some silver.

ABBY! EVIL. AND AWESOME. I do not ship Tim/Gibbs for much the same reason I don't ship Gibbs/DiNozzo. But if I did, that look would please me. Along with that episode where Tim drives Gibbs home and tries to keep up with his schedule.

I wanna know what McFake said to make Tony say "Probie does a lot for me." Also, I'm actually not that keen on seeing 'Probie' back. Huh. But at least Tony's backed Tim up, now that Tim's out of earshot.

... eyefucking. For sadly too short a time.

Ziva ships Tim/Tony. We already knew that, but it's very obvious here.

That shooting was unnecessarily graphic.

This is where "manmance" comes from. Of course.

"Us NCIS geeks." You just know McFake said something horrible about Tim to make Tony dump him. And because Tony had now taught Tim his lesson, he could easily cut the strings. But this episode is probably one of the worst examples of Tony's behaviour for a long time. And Tim standing him up makes no sense at all. I am now pondering what really happened between them, because it has to go a long way back before 'you stood me up'. Why wouldn't Tim at least have texted Tony back to say he had the wrong day?

The only way I can kind of make sense of this is if they're friends with benefits and Tony did ask Tim to hook him up, but only because he's testing him --- trying to get him to admit that what they have is worth something, and Tim looooves Tony, so naturally he's pissed off and jealous, and doesn't realise it's a test. Tony takes Tim's behaviour as avoidance. Tim takes Tony's as not!love. They angst but don't talk, because they're idiots. Tony continues to test Tim, because he's fairly sure Tim loves him but he won't admit it, and dammit, can't he see Tony's put everything on the line for him? Isn't it obvious this is it, McOblivious? And he's such an emotional fuck-up he can't just say, "I love you, Timothy. I have done for seemingly ever." But he starts to think maybe Tim's just blind enough not to realise that what they have is real and he, Tony, well, he's been acting like a Grade A ++ Jerk. There are no words he can say to fix this, not totally. His inability to be a sensible adult, it is crazy huge, and anyway, he can't always be the one making compromises, Tim has to see it himself at some point, he is being blatant with a capital B here. If he hurts McFake in any way while trying to prove a point, maybe he'll feel a little bad, but, to be fair, for McFake this really is bro rather than ro mance.

And I was right. The network tv equivalent of Tim/Tony kissing. THEY ARE SO IN LOVE. IT'S CANON.

Parts of this episode are going to get rewatched so much.

You do know that now I will not be functional for my practicum tomorrow because I will have stayed up too late watching this?
7th-Apr-2010 04:10 am (UTC)
It's kind of amazing.
7th-Apr-2010 03:25 pm (UTC)
I don't write fic, but this Abby and Ziva sitting down with popcorn to watch security footage of Tim and Tony idea just popped into my head.
7th-Apr-2010 04:05 am (UTC)
I just finished watching this half-an-hour ago. and all I could think was "OMG LOZ IS GOING TO LOVE THIS!" and "ZIVA IS WRITING RPS FOR THEM ON HER OFF TIME!"

The scene with Abby, Tim, and Gibbs was absolute love.
7th-Apr-2010 04:12 am (UTC)
:D :D :D

True and true. And I mean true.

I loved it but it pissed me off as well, because even though the show was being very obvious with its "CLEARLY TCAD IS WRONG. TIM/TONY FOREVER", I was still sad seeing them be so unhappy towards each other.

I am a little tinhattish about these two too, it seems.
7th-Apr-2010 04:32 am (UTC)
It wouldn't have been so upsetting if the writers knew the viewers knew how much they really love each other. So I still think it's a win in a weird way? Also, it just means tons of h/c fic centered on this ep, y?
7th-Apr-2010 05:36 am (UTC)
I think I went cross-eyed trying to make out that first sentence.

Hah, oh yes.
7th-Apr-2010 12:00 pm (UTC)
Is it just me or is Tim looking particularly thin in this episode???
7th-Apr-2010 03:08 pm (UTC)
Tim always looks thin now. :D
8th-Apr-2010 10:21 am (UTC)
But he looked sickly thin.... Not a fan of the new Tim...

I was so waiting for your reaction to this episode. I mean, dude, SO FRICKING BLATANT. And I bet Ziva and Abby write the RPS fanfic together in their spare time. (Right before the Abby/Tim/Gibbs scene, I said, "It's okay, Tim, Tony'll be back, it's just a fling." And then she essentially said the same thing. I laughed.)
7th-Apr-2010 03:10 pm (UTC)
It's likely you heard my reaction to this episode, across the seas :D

And yes, Abby and Ziva totally write RPF about Tim and Tony, like, all the time. Ziva especially was having a great deal of fun imagining things hanging out, her narrowed eyes and wicked smile make that clear.
8th-Apr-2010 11:13 pm (UTC)
I find it doubly hilarious because I wrote Tim/Tony fic once, in which Ziva was totally egging Tony on to ask Tim out. Ziva: slashing her co-workers since 2008 (at least).

I watched the beginning of this yesterday before my mom (very unusually) said "I don't feel like watching this"- but before she changed the channel I was thinking, Oh man, Loz is going to love this one...

"And I was right. The network tv equivalent of Tim/Tony kissing. THEY ARE SO IN LOVE. IT'S CANON."

WHat was it?
7th-Apr-2010 09:29 pm (UTC)
Tony gave Tim a nutter butter, and Tim was all "Feel guilty don't you? You should."(/"I won't apologise."/"I didn't expect you to.") So, Tim being evil and awesome and the reason I ship these two: they're on the same level now, even if they didn't start out that way. And then Tim ribbed Tony some more by puffing on his coffee, grinning between puffs. Tony grabbed the nutter butter, proclaiming "why do I even bother?" and stomped off to his desk, but we finished on a shot of him grinning. Equilibrium had been restored.

It couldn't have been any more obvious we're meant to think they love each other than if they'd had wild and frantic sex over Tim's desk. They practically did. Some of the looks between them were crazy heated.
8th-Apr-2010 02:49 am (UTC)
Oh man. That is excellent.

I haven't seen this episode yet, and I'm such a Tim fan I'm not sure I want to. It's just, Tony is blatently in love with Tim, with all the teasing and the touching. I've not really seen much evidence for Tim being (hopelessly) in love with Tony (then again, I do have a tin hat which blocks my view) that to have such a strong episode with Tim acting like the jealous boyfriend is a complete reversal for me.

I am a Tim/Gibbs shipper and I am tempted to watch this episode just for the moment you pointed out. I'm kind of a fan of Tony acting like a jerk because he likes Tim too much, and by doing so he drives Tim into Gibbs' arms. I'm bitter that way.

I shall watch the episode, and then write a fic from Tony's POV explaining his behaviour, because he really does love Tim. I just wish, the episode about their relationship, didn't involve cheating and jealousy and hurt. *hugs Tim*
7th-Apr-2010 09:22 pm (UTC)
Dude, I am gonna write you a list of "Tim loves Tony" evidence. He's more subtle, but it's there.

... yet if your tin hat is anything like my tin hat, it won't do a lick of good.

We're so, so different. I would never, ever want a relationship to be borne out of such a horrible scenario.
7th-Apr-2010 10:02 pm (UTC)
I do think Tim loves Tony, but you're right about it being more subtle. I don't think Tim even consciously realises it. On the other hand Tony's crush is pretty hard to ignore, even if it can be sublimated into other things.

I try to be open, I really do. I hate being inflexible. But my tin hat is rather firmly fixed. Annoyingly.

I try to be a good person (I've kind of said that a lot this comment. Methinks the lady doth protest too much). It's not that the relationship has to be borne out of such a horrible situation, but there are times when I think Tim deserves to be with someone more... mature. I've seen the episode now and at the end they're both happy with their relationship but it's one of annoyance and childishness.
